4.15/5  rDev +12.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Cloudy, washed-out orange appearance with a silky one-finger head. Small but clearly visible sediment particles circulating within the glass.

Prominent floral and citrus hop in the nose.

Assertive grapefruit hop flavors. Trace of paper/cardboard. Dark-toasted and caramel malts provide some balance.

Smooth in the mouth; goes down as easy as you want.

I enjoyed this. Might not be as complex or challenging as some other IPAs, but I like mine to be more inviting. Thanks to a buddy of mine who got married last summer and got me 3 months of Beer of the Month Club as a groomsman gift; this beer came in my final installment.

4.26/5  rDev +15.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours copper with a creamy head that leaves some lacing.

The smell is of citric fruits - especially grapefruit - with herbal notes. Robust hop aroma.

The taste is of citric fruits and herbal notes, balanced by a touch of caramel. It has a bitter, dry finish. Hops linger through aftertaste.

It has a chewy, smooth body.

This is a hop delight! Just enough malt to give it a backbone, the hops truly shine here! A very well-made American IPA!

3.84/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

The paler side of orange, this beer is translucent but not transparent, with some chill haze and maybe even some particulate hop matter floating around. There is a soft, billowy, white cloud of foam that recedes, lacing the glass and ringing the beer surface,

American hops, all the way, in the nose. Pine and Citrus.

Taste: If you like chinook, this is going to register as a good balanced beer. If you find chinook a bit strong, maybe even obnoxious, this beer will not change your opinion.
